In 2001, with the birth of FREAK fantasy, Ulysse Nardin Watch created the silicon era in the field of watches and clocks. At the same time, Ulysse Nardin also used silicon parts and carrousel devices to run through the aesthetic and mechanical core of the entire FREAK fantasy series. Here comes a highly recognizable design.
At the just-concluded 2023 “Watches and Miracles” Geneva Watch Fair, in order to pay tribute to the first generation of fantasy 22 years ago, Ulysse Nardin decided to use it as a prototype to create a new FREAK ONE fantasy watch.
The new work continues the three iconic features of the fantasy buy replica watches: no dial, no hands, no crown design, but its appearance and performance hardware assembly, in fact, it has also achieved the highlights of new products in recent years.
Let’s look at the exterior design first. The case is made of black DLC-coated titanium and is equipped with a rose gold pitted bezel. This set is taken from the Freak S flagship watch released last year. On the dial, it inherits the nautical element design of the 2013 FREAK CRUISER. The entire carrousel strip-shaped anchor movement will be transformed into a minute hand, with a triangular hour arrow on the lower layer, and a newly added four-point Arabic numerals. Indicates the time.
In terms of performance, Ulysse Nardin has adopted a full set of silicon escapement for FREAK ONE, from the balance wheel to the escapement to the hairspring, all of which are made of silicon, and adopts DIAMonSIL diamond silicon crystal technology to make the silicon parts of the watch movement more wear-resistant and Anti-seismic, this is a demonstration of the technical strength of Ulysse Nardin. At the same time, the beating effect of the large-size silicon balance wheel will be particularly brisk and highly recognizable.
However, I think the most noteworthy point for watch friends is that FREAK ONE integrates a “grinder” automatic winding mechanism. It is also integrally formed of silicon parts, which can sensitively capture the subtle movements of the wearer and convert them into energy, which is twice the efficiency of the traditional winding structure.
FREAK ONE, can be said to be the most outstanding “integrator” of comprehensive technology in the current FREAK series. It also makes the grinding upper chain that was once only available on flagship models, and realizes the popularization of technology. The public price of the watch is 495,700 yuan, and it is sold in unlimited quantities. The 500,000 yuan level has also completely filled the vacancy of the flagship model FREAK S to the entry-level model FREAK X, the vacancy of the backbone products.
